Professor Eunice Simmons, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Nottingham Trent, said: “Our results this year build on an excellent trajectory of six years of continuous improvement in position relative to competitors. We are the largest university in terms of undergraduate student numbers of any institution in the top 20 which makes this score particularly pleasing.

“We also achieved fantastic scores for our libraries and specialist learning resources which demonstrates our student-focused investment plan is working.”

Of the institutions included in the data, 33 have increased in satisfaction, 21 maintained their score – including Nottingham Trent – and 91 decreased in satisfaction.

Note that several major higher education institutions, including the universities of Cambridge, Manchester, Oxford and Sheffield, do not feature in this year’s National Student Survey table after a boycott by students in protest over England’s teaching excellence framework.

12 universities are omitted from the results of the nationwide student satisfaction survey, published on 9 August,2017 after fewer than 50% of the final-year undergraduates completed the survey questions.


  1. I was a student at Nottingham Trent when it was a Polytechnic during the 1970’s & 1980’s. It has transformed into an outstanding university with excellent lecturers and a very good social life in Nottingham City. The student success rate and employability for graduates are excellent, both in the UK and abroad.
